"Guiding Pathways," a creative arts day program that promotes community connectedness and mental stimulation, is being offered every month in Bowling Green. It is a collaboration with Bowling Green Manor, Wood Lane, First Christian Church and the Wood County Committee on Aging.
Those who wish to explore the arts and want to participate in activities to promote cognitive stimulation, purposeful engagement or simply to be social, are invited to this gathering every third Friday of the month. Guiding Pathways is held at First Christian Church, located at 875 Haskins Road, Bowling Green. The gatherings have participants experience interaction in a relaxing and engaging environment. Participation aims to foster fellowship, promote exploration of movement and music, theater, art, small group activities, and community outreach.
The goal of Guiding Pathways is not only to provide a place for participants to socialize and take part in stimulating activities, but also to enable caregivers to have some time for themselves. Although program organizers wish to give caregivers this time to themselves, caregivers are certainly welcome to attend with their loved ones if they prefer to. There is a $5 program fee for Guiding Pathways.
The next Guiding Pathways is to take place on Friday, Nov. 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The theme is "Thankfulness."
The Committee on Aging plans and develops programs and services that will allow adults over 60 to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible. Services include information and referral, nutrition program, home-bound assistance, exercise classes and other engaging programs and services for older adults throughout Wood County.
